Everywhere I look in Seoul new infrastructure for bikes is springing up. Some of it is simply a recognition that bikes tend to share the pavements [sidewalks] here, with shared path signs proliferating. And some of it is intended mainly for leisure, such as the cycleways along the River Han, which seem to be growing daily:

Although I failed to snap them, there were a handful of cyclists already out trying this new route.
As an added bonus, one particularly nice stretch runs by a row of brightly-coloured flower shops:
